Freetown, September 18, 2023 – Chairman Dauda, the former Team Manager of Leone Stars and Chairman of Brookfield United Football, an ex-pupil of St. Anthony Boys Primary School, made a significant contribution to his alma mater on Thursday, September 14, 2023. He turned the sod for the construction of a multi-purpose recreational sports complex within the school compound.

The Head Teacher of the Afternoon Shift at St. Anthony Primary School expressed his delight at the initiative, calling it a dream come true. The new facilities will facilitate physical exercise as part of the school curriculum and instil pride in the students.
St. Anthony Primary School has a strong sporting history and has excelled in various inter-primary school competitions, including winning the championship trophy two years ago and achieving second place in football and basketball competitions in the last edition. BT/18/9/2023
